4.5 Better than I expected SANDM4N | 26/01/2010 | See all SANDM4N's reviews (9) Ive been a big soul calibur fan for more than 10 years since the dreamcast days, so I was very excited when I heard about this realease. However when I read all the reviews I was pretty disappointed due to the lack of proper single player game modes (as you'll read from the reviews below).So I didn't buy it at first...when the price dropped to 10.00 I thought it was worth a go. I bought it with full knowledge of the game modes available and expected to be disappointed but I was pleasantly surprised!There are a couple of game modes which ive been playing alot: the endless survival and quick battle. In both cases you just fight against lots of computer controlled characters. The gameplay and controls are amazing, exactly like the PS3 version and graphics and sound are some of the best i've seen on the PSP (you even get the random voice over guy babbling nonsense about destiny and the like).I've enjoyed playing it and theres also kind of achivements to collect through battles. There are 200 titles to be won and if you beat a character with a certain title you can win that title. It extends the replayablity for all the completists.You can also customise your character and with the titles you've earned play against others using Ad Hoc Party on the PS3 (assuming you have a PS3).Overall I've had alot of fun playing this game. The low expectations I had initially helped me appreciate the game more for what it is. It definitely could be better and I hope Namco can release another version with proper single player modes but for 10.00 its worth it.
